Home Reach explained at Priory Fields event

Homebuyers in Wells will have the opportunity to learn more about the scheme that’s helped thousands afford the space they need.

Bovis Homes is holding a Home Reach event at its Priory Fields development this weekend – Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th March – to explain how homebuyers may be able to move to a beautiful new home, even if they think it may be out of reach.

Working in partnership with heylo, the housebuilder is offering the part-buy-part-rent scheme on selected homes.

Simon, Alina, Keira and April moved to a new three bedroom home at Priory Fields, thanks to the Home Reach scheme. Simon commented: “We were renting a two bedroom property in Frome, before moving to Wells. It was nice enough but it was too small for our growing family and we really wanted to have a house of our own.

“As I’m a bricklayer, I’d actually worked at Priory Fields before! We saw the property on Rightmove and then found out about the Home Reach scheme. It absolutely helped us. For the money that we had managed to save while renting, we would have been able to afford a two bedroom flat at most, which just wasn’t practical for us. We couldn’t believe our luck.

“Put simply, Home Reach allowed us to move house. Without it, we wouldn’t have been able to afford a mortgage or raise a big enough deposit. With high rental costs, you find yourself trapped and not being able to save anything, then at the end of your tenancy you are still left with nothing. However, with Home Reach the money we’re paying is our investment and it’s not just given away to a landlord.

“Wells seems to have everything you need on your doorstep. It really feels like we’ve really landed on our feet and we couldn’t be happier!”

Sales and marketing director, Sue Scholfield, commented: “Home Reach is a brilliant scheme that can really make a difference and it’s wonderful to hear that Simon and Alina now have the space they need.

“To help homebuyers, we’re holding an event at the development on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th March. Come along and find out about the Home Reach scheme, where we’ll have independent specialists on hand to offer free financial advice. With just five per cent deposit needed, you could be moving home sooner than you think, so visit us to find out more.”

Priory Fields is a new development of one to four bedroom homes, located in the charming city of Wells, off Wookey Hole Road. There are currently two and three bedroom houses available with Home Reach.
